Sunshine on Leith


A friend sent the link to the YouTube video. The song – “500 Miles,” originally recorded by The Proclaimers  – was sung in the 2013 movie Sunshine on Leith. It’s the story of two Scottish soldiers who return home after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Leith is a part of Edinburgh.

Yes, it’s sentimental. It’s part music, part dancing, part lyrics, and part flash mob. I love to watch it.

Tugs at the heartstrings it does.

The part where he's walking a patrol in Afghanistan made me choke up quite a bit.
